I recently designed and completed this hall/sofa table. There are more details on the design and construction at my blog. Here’s the short version:

The table is made from 8/4 and 4/4 Walnut. I attempted to create an Arts and Crafts style piece with some Asian influence and simple lines. It is constructed with loose tenon joints and visible contrasting dowels. It is finished with a thinned oil/varnish blend that was wiped on.

very nice – I like how the top seems to float (front view) and the gentle curves….
